NCCOS Scientist Presents Eutrophication Assessment to Aid in Development of New Jersey Nutrient Monitoring and Assessment Program
A researcher with the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) presented the method of assessment and use of monitoring data by the National Estuarine Eutrophication Assessment to the New Jersey Monitoring Coordinating Council. The Council requested NCCOS’s expertise to assist the state with the determination of criteria for nutrient monitoring and assessment in New Jersey coastal water bodies. This presentation was part of the New Jersey Monitoring Coordinating Council (NJMCC) meeting to help guide further development of a nutrient monitoring and assessment program for coastal water bodies in that state. The NJMCC meeting, held in Trenton on September 6, 2007, was convened to discuss present activities and issues in fresh and coastal waters.
